  1. Here is the latest addition to my watch collection. Whilst raking through a rummage box on a car boot stall in Leicestershire this morning, this sorry looking object caught my eye. Not too pretty.... At this point I was still not sure what I had picked up but curiosity got the better of me so I asked the price. £2 quickly changed hands and it was mine. And here is what I found. So here is what I think I know; 1. Old 2. Verge escapement with a fusee 3. Missing hair spring and fusee chain 4. Probably ought to have some sort of regulator for the balance which is notable by its absence 5. Appears to only have an arbor for an hour hand, no minutes 6. English (London) 7. James Pigney? can find no reference to the name 8. Light pressure on the fusee cone and even without a hair spring she runs!!!! This one is going to be quite a challenge and an education to do something with. Would anyone care to have a go at filling in my missing information or correcting my misinformation. I would love to know something of its history. pspbrwse.jbf
  2. Hi All I'm new to watch repair, but I have recently found myself becoming fascinated with those extremely ornate (and what looks like totally hand made) old antique verge fusee pocket watches from the late 17th and early 18th centuries. However, I cant really seem to find a good source of detailed info on these watches (online or in book form). There are some more general sources that mention these old antique timepieces, but I cant find any in-depth or definitive info sources. Has any other member looked into this already ? If so - what dd you manage to dig up ? Or any other advice on this recent twist on my watch passions ? Thanks Dean
